Eviyos came as a result from the µAFS research project which was completed in the fall of 2016. The project coordinated by Osram Opto Semiconductors involved various partners from the industrial sector. The prototype accommodates the 1,024 individually controllable pixels of Eviyos with the driving electronics in a 4x4mm package.
The idea of adaptive lighting is that as soon as oncoming traffic is detected, the appropriate pixels are automatically switched off so drivers of oncoming vehicles are not dazzled. Osram Specialty Lighting has integrated the prototype in a demonstrator to be exhibited during this year’s International Symposium on Automotive Lighting.
The light source has a minimum luminous flux per pixel of 3 lm at 11mA. Initial prototypes have already exhibited more than 4.6lm per pixel. Customers can vary the number of hybrid LEDs in their applications and supplement them with conventional LEDs, depending on the particular requirements that need to be met.
“We are proud that we can present the first prototype so soon after completing the research project. We are now another stage further toward series production”, said Thomas Christl, Marketing Manager at Osram Opto Semiconductors.
At its planned launch at the start of 2020 Eviyos will form a separate product family offering a wide range of possible applications.
